Thank God for the might of it, 

The ardor, the urge, the delight of it — 

Work that springs from the heart's desire, 

Setting the brain and soul on fire — 

Oh, what is so good as the heat of it, 

And what is so glad as the beat of it, 

And what is so kind as the stern command, 

Challenging brain and heart and hand? 


Thank God for the pride of it, 

For the beautiful, conquering tide of it, 

Sweeping the life in its furious ftood, 

Thrilling the arteries, cleansing the blood, 

Mastering stupor and dull despair, 

Moving the dreamer to do and dare. 

Oh, what is so good as the urge of it, 

And what is so glad as the surge of it, 

And what is so strong as the summons deep, 

Rousing the torpid soul from sleep? 

— Angela Morgan.

Vol. XVIII Jacksonville, 111., April, 1915 No. 7 


Anyone going into the Society halls during the fort- 
night from March 2 7th to April 10th will find much de- 
light and pleasure in theforty-four pictures, by contem- 
porary American painters, which are there on exhibition. 
The exhibition is a distinguished showing of pictures with 
very distinctive qualities of charm and wonder, and it 
gives us an unusual opportunity to study the trend of 
painting in America today; and after study one is distinctly 
conscious of a moving spirit in American painting that is 
evolving a style peculiarly and eminently our own, a style 
no longer strongly imitative of the art from abroad but a 
fresh, spontaneous, vigorous point of view, poetic and 
imaginative in quality, and with the frankness of our open 
vision. To have these pictures for study and enjoyment 
for several weeks is to have an asset of a decidedly in- 
spirational nature, and the collection is so varied in inter- 
est and selection that everyone will find something pecu- 
liarly appealing to himself. 

A picture that must attract universal attention is "The 
Hill Country'' by Gardner Symons, one of our most dis- 
tinguished landscape painters; a lovely stretch of snow- 
covered country and distant tree-covered purpling hills, 
a group of bare tree trunks with warm color against the 
winter sky, and in the foreground three cattle drinking at 
a well, over all the charm of an atmosphere so sympa- 
thetically painted, so humanly intelligible, that one is car- 
ried away to like scenes and places. 

Hobart Nichols, a young painter coming into con- 
spicuous prominence, contributes one of the most charm- 
ing pictures in the collection in his "Falling Waters." A 

Page Three 

Gtfje College Greeting* 

picture full of poetic vision, with the sparkling radiance 
of summer, of rainbow mist, of falling stream and color 
blended exquisitely into a sensation of dream suggestive- 
ness that renews its charm with each new viewing. 
"Summer" by Gustave Cimiotti is a very decorative 
arrangement, tall trees in a flower-strewn meadow that 
leads one back and way beyond where dreaming hills 
and purpling mountains reach the summer sky. All the 
peace and repose and quiet joy of a perfect summer day 
enticing one are broadly painted and yet the work has an 
exquisite finish that gives a deep sense of delight and sat- 

An unusual and striking composition is that of Her- 
bert Dunton, 'The Navaho Country." A vast sweep of 
sky with great clouds floating in the blue, a stretch of 
sage brush mesa, and aginst the purple of a far distant 
mountain three lonely Indian riders sweep the horizon 
line. The picture conveys all the solitariness of that 
desert country and the mystery of its red men. In 
"Winter" Leonard Ochtman gives us a beautiful 
and most satisfying rendering of a winter's day, full of the 
suggestiveness of lovely winter things and stillness. It 
is painted with very subtle charm that draws one back to 
view it many times. 

Edward Redfield, in his picture "The Old Barn," has 
interpreted for us winter country such as has been the 
experience of so many of us, and it is an intimate ren- 
dering that has great appeal. 

"The Valley" by William Wendt, one of the most 
prominent painters of California landscape, is a lovely 
California of wonderfully modelled hills and beautiful 
mountain tops of rare coloring. 

"Washington Square" by Paul Conoyer is a morning 
view of that old square in New York loved of artists. It 
is a picture full of the atmosphere and charm of time and 

"Sad Evening" by Ernest Lawson is a very interesting 

Page Four 

®%e College (greetings 

subject of much imaginative quality and of great techni- 
cal interest. 

In the picture of Frederick Frieseke, "In the Garden," 
we have a most charming expression of a work very sug- 
gestive in style of the trend among modern French plein 
air painters. 

There are so many pictures we would wish to call 
attention to, for there is distinctive charm in all of them. 
Some are interesting because of subject, or perhaps be- 
cause of individual technique, and many just by reason 
of poetic interpretation of some of nature's moods. 

"The Spotted Curtain by Neilson is an extremely in- 
teresting achievement technically and a picture of unus- 
ual charm of color arrangement and setting, being dis- 
tinctly modern in style. "Fore Street, St. Ives" by Dixie 
Selden is a street down which one could walk with pleas- 
ure, finding quaint shops and interesting folks to talk 
with. Jonas Lie with his broadly painted "Children 
Bathing" gives us a happy conception of nature. The 
picture is filled with the spirit of the moment and in style 
it is very expressive of the direction of present day Ameri- 
can painting. "Spring" by Robert Spencer, a young 
and most promising painter, is a springtime filled with 
the promise of moist earth, budding yellowing trees, ten- 
der sky and gentle atmosphere that makes one feel the 
tender touch of the new things of earth and spirit. There 
is nothing lovlier in the exhibition than John Johanson's 
"Woodland Pool," two lovely youthful figures in the 
shadowed depths of a deep, far-reaching forest. There 
is a mysterious pool of water in the foreground toward 
which one lovely form reaches with outstretched hand 
and through the deep greens of the dark vague forest a 
ray of sunshine falls on leaves and flecks a shoulder into 
brilliant light, an arm into sunshine. Painted very 
broadly, it yet has a most subtle charm of form and color 
that is elusive and enticing. The portrait of Mrs. St. 
Gaudens and son by Louise Cox is a very delightful pic- 
ture of a charming woman and a most alluring child and

gives one a very pleasing sense of pleasure and interest. 
With a desire to make the exhibition mean much to 
the public as well as to the College, Dr. Harker shows a 
very broad public spirit in inviting the children of the pub- 
lic schools to come without admission fee and of placing 
the exhibition rooms at the disposal of various clubs for 
evening sessions. The exhibition should mean much in 
reawakening that art interest that is becoming so deep a 
thing in many of our smaller cities and towns, and it is 
a rare and unusual opportunity for enrichment to each 
and every one of us. N. A. K. 


In Mrs. Murphy's garden there was contention and 
strife, hard feeling and bitter enmity. Not an onion was 
on speaking terms with a beet; strong was the rivalry in 
their corner of the garden. Nor did the cauliflower con- 
descend to recognize the presence of the cabbage, the 
radishes wilted the lettuce with their fiery glances, the 
beans from the top of their tent poles flirted with the peas 
climbing on the fence beside them but were completely 

It was a sad state of affairs indeed and grieved Denny 
Murphy sorely. He said he knew just how they felt by 
the way they turned up their leaves and paid no attention 
to each other. Denny's garden had been the pride of his 
heart the year before and peace and plenty had reigned 
from the bean poles to the parsley bed. But this year 
things were different. Denny had planted three rows of 
a choice variety of Irish potato right through the middle 
of the garden and they had thrived and sent out heavy 
vines blossoming with many little yellow-star flowers. 

The potato had made trouble from the start. The 
other vegetables had all agreed at first that it was an insult 
to have "that Irish upstart" there; quarrels had followed 
until none of the neighbors were on speaking terms. 
Denny was hurt by it all and tried his best to make peace 

Page Sir 

GDfje College Greeting* 

but to no avail. So he bided his time until the big-hearted 
Irish potato should mature and be lifted from the ground 
to the sunlight, for he knew that the potato was a true 
Irish gentleman and would settle this silly quarrel. 

Finally the day came when Denny knew it was time 
for the potato to open his eyes and see his neighbor. 

'The top o' the mornin' to you," he cried breezily 
as he looked around, "and how do you find yourselves 
this bright mornin? Tis well you're looking, Miss 
Cauliflower, and here are my old friends, Mr. Corn and 
Beans — well, well, how glad I am to see you! Perhaps 
we'll meet again — when I am mashed and you are suc- 
cotash on Mrs. Murphy's table — 'tis not an unhappy pros- 
pect, is it, when we think how it will make the little Mur- 
phy's round and rosy? I am glad you agree with me, 
Miss Cabbage, I knew you had a splendid head on you. 
And here's my old pal, Mr. Onion — a fine, strong char- 
acter, standing for the right thing. It brings tears to my 
eyes to think on his faithfulness in the past. It beats me 
— well, on my soul, here are the Beets, blushing as usual. 
It is because they live next door to you, Miss Radish. And 
the Lettuce sisters, how do you find yourselves? But 
you are always crisp and fresh as a spring morning — like 
Miss Parsley over there — did you have a hard winter?" 

And so he chatted on, and with the magic of his blar- 
ney dispelled all the gloom from the garden. In spite of 
themselves, the other vegetables were cheered and forgot 
their quarrels. The corn pricked up his ears, the cabbage 
lifted her head, and the whole garden was restored to 
good humor and peace and they joined the potato with 
right good will as he sang — 

"Oh, my father and mother were Irish — 
And I am Irish, too!" 

Winifred Robison, '17.

FUND OF 1913. 

The total amount pledged to endowment by June, 
1913, was §182,242.56. Of this amount §137,839.67 
has now been paid. There remains unpaid $44,403.28, 
which will be due by June 4 of this year. It is earnestly 
hoped that this balance will be paid soon. 

Will every friend who sees this notice make an effort 
to send in the unpaid balance as soon as possible? It 
will be a great advantage to the College if all these ac- 
counts are paid by Commencement, June 1. 

If it is impossible in any case to make the payments 
by the final date, as promised in the subscription, the 
trustees will request that the subscription be put into the 
form of a note, with five per cent, interest from June 4, 
1915, so as to make the total amount available as pro- 
ductive endowment. But they will greatly prefer that 
the pledges be paid rather than that notes be made. 

All remittances should be made payable to the Illi- 
nois Woman's College.

There is not one of us who does not have a deep long- 
ing to make good and measure up to the expectations of 
our parents and of our own ideals. It is no easy thing 
to do. Drifting, or doing the easiest thing that comes 
along, will not bring us anywhere. We must strike out 
on our own path to make progress. What is more, if 
we make good we must be more than just good. For 
some it is a comparatively easy thing to be good; they 
never seem to get in the way of trouble, but any one who 
is passively good is colorless. What counts is the posi- 
tive assertion of one's better self. One who actively 
does something for some one for the sake of the doing 
is the person who stands out as one of strength. Such are 
the people who count in the world. 

Just as the world needs positive characters, so our 
college needs positive students. If every girl who enters 
the walls of old I. W. C. would so school herself, we might 
be certain of a student body which would move things. 
In our striving for our Alma Mater, let us make it our aim 
to be all-around girls who measure up and stand definitely 
for a cause. 

A short time ago Dr. Harker read to us extracts from 
a few of the numerous letters he had received from the 
leading universities in the country. They all gave the 
same verdict, with one exception, which was to the effect 
that any student who has received a degree from the 111 i— 

Page Nine 

®be College Greetings: 

nois Woman's College is elligible to enter these univer- 
sities to pursue work which will entitle her to a master's 
degree at the end of one year. A few of the universities 
were: Johns Hopkins, Minnesota, California, Leland 
Standford, Wisconsin and Illinois. The one exception 
was the University of Michigan. This school had under- 
stood that the University of Illinois did not accept stu- 
dents from I. W. C. for this work. We are proud to say 
that the University of Illinois has accepted our graduates 
for graduate work and that the only two who have under- 
taken the work have brought honor to the school. The 
University of Michigan has been enlightened since. 

Many are the business envelopes which find their way 
to the Greetings office. Speeches of senators, bills intro- 
duced, and pamphlets of investigating committees are 
generally of interest and are often kept for future refer- 
ence. Other brilliantly colored advertisements of en- 
gravers travel by rapid transit to the waste paper basket. 
The contents of many an envelope after a hurried glance 
brings a smile to the reader's face who makes a mental 
note or possibly passes the fun along by showing it to a 
neighbor before dooming it to the same fate. Early in 
the year a fire arms company offered to supply us with 
fire arms in exchange for advertising. A short time ago 
we received notice of an essay contest which we were 
asked to announce. The essays were to be written on 
'The Esthetical Value of Cremation." The latest offer 
which we have received is a proposition by which we are 
to receive Polo Club cigarettes at the retail price of 25c 
per box to the extent of $10.00 if we will introduce them 
into the college by advertising. I wonder if the company 
wouldn't regret the waste of a postage stamp if they 
knew that their efforts only contributed to keep Tom 
busy emptying the waste basket.

One hundred Freshmen next year! That is what 
every loyal daughter of I. W. C. would like to see. Write 
to every one you know who is going away to school next 
year and tell them just what kind of a college this is, just 
what we stand for,** just what our aim is. Let them see 
that you like it and that will have far more effect than all 
the catalogues the office could send. Help swell the 
ranks of our college. Be a booster! Let every one see 
that you have college spirit, and the right kind. A Fresh- 
man class of one hundred! Yes, that is what we want, 
but is that all? No. We ought to have a Senior class 
of twenty-five, a Junior class of forty, and a Sophomore 
class of sixty next year. Begin to talk to your neighbor. 
Let her know you intend to come back. Use your influ- 
ence among the girls already here as well as among new 
girls. Here and now is the time to show your loyalty. 

A Sophomore. 


Who are, who are, who are we? 

We are the girls of I. W. C. 

A pocket full of rocks, a head full of knowledge, 

I'd rather go to ours than any other college. 

This is the College yell which it seems is very old yet 

which none of us seem to know. Track Day is coming 

when we'll badly need some good college yells. Learn 

this one so that we can give it on the bleachers in rousing 

tones. We should have a long list of yells which belong 

to I. W. C. alone. If our clever rhymsters would put 

their heads together there is no reason why we shouldn't 

have v/hat we need. The Greetings will be glad to print 

such yells in the May issue so that the girls will have a 

chance to learn them more readily and before the Big Day. 


Spring is really here. For proof of it just observe the 
redoubled activities in all lines of athletics. The tennis 

Page Eleven 

MM gftje College Greeting* 

courts are being used, basketball girls are practicing daily, 
members of hike clubs are hiking, and some of the more 
ambitious have already begun to practice for track. 

Our new tennis court is a realization of a long talked 
of dream. The only drawback to it is that there is only 
one. We must plan and work for more hard courts now 
that we realize the good qualities of this one. 

Much interest and enthusiasm is being shown in the 
basketball tournament. There are four teams entering: 
the Academy, College Special, Freshmen, and Sophomore 
teams. There have been several exciting preliminary 
games in which the rooters as well as the players have 
gained some practice. The first of these games was that 
between the Faculty and Academy and the score was a 
victory for the Faculty in a very close and exciting game. 

The College Specials waged a rousing game with the 
Academy February 2 7. Lots of pep was in evidence on 
both sides, but the luck swung to the Specials, leaving the 
score 13-5. However, much credit is due to the "preps" 
for they played an exceedingly good game. 

March 6 the Freshmen played Sophomores a mighty 
good game of basketball. At the close of the first half 
the score stood 6-6. However, at the close of the second 
half the score stood 12-8 in favor of the Sophomores. 
Both classes gave their heary support to their teams. 

The first game of the series, between the College 
Specials and Sophomores, was scheduled for Thursday, 
March 18th. A close game in favor of the Specials, 
17-16, was played. 

The hike clubs have been reorganized with Vivian 
Newman, Katherine Glascock, Mildred Spencer and Edna 
Robb as leaders. Wc are expecting even more points 
this time than in the first term. 

Along with our many other activities we must keep in 
mind the fact that it will soon be time for our track meet. 
Those who were in the meet last year went in mostly for 
the fun of it, but this year we want to break some records. 
We have the material, and so — why not?

My QCfje College Greeting* 


The heart of every Freshman has been made glad over 
the fact that the class is finally organized. The first thing 
the Freshmen did was to entertain the Juniors. 

What could be more appropriate than for the Fresh- 
men to make their formal appearance in chapel on St. 
Patrick's Day! As the large green and white banner was 
unfurled the Freshmen marched to the front of the chapel 
singing 'The Wearin' of the Green." Then they sang 
the class song — 

Honor and love to the college dear, 

Come now, her glorious praises hear. 

Her motto, ever we'll love, adore, 

In anthems of praise 

Our voices we'll raise 

For evermore. 

Knowledge, thy praise we sing. 

Faith, to thee we cling. 

Service freely we bring 

In all things we do, 

To our motto we're true, 

The yellow and blue. 
After the singing of the class hymn, "Oh Jesus I Have 
Promised," Dr. Harker gave a short talk. It was a very 
happy time for the Freshmen except for the fact that the 
class officer, Miss Hull, could not be present on account 
of her mother's illness. 


For rhymes the editor has asked 

About things that are sure to last. 

There's nothing yet that one could name 

So glorious as Freshmen fame. 

We have a famous president, 

This fact is very prevalent. 

You'll find us here with all our "pep" 

Page Thirteen 

Cfje College Greeting* 

Ready to fight to save our "rep." 
We'll cheer our team with all our might 
Tho prospects be as black as night. 
We will admit we're mostly green, 
For to the white and green we're keen. 
Tho with the Sophs we're each a friend, 
Our sympathy we soon will lend. 
With mighty Juniors at our side, 
Victoriously to base we'll slide. 
And true is every Freshman girl, 
And we can set things in a whirl. 
I'm sure you know, both one and all, 
That Freshmen can play basketball. 
By those firm laws which we're allied 
With hearty zeal we each abide. 
Tho some may scorn these lines to read, 
They soon must Freshman victory heed. 

A Freshman. 


The Recognition Service in honor of the Seniors of 
the College Special class was held March 13 at chapel 
time. The regular chapel exercises were varied by a well 
rendered violin solo by Mrs. Day and remarks by Dr. 
Harker, in which he traced the rise and development of 
the special vocations, such as music and art, showing the 
significance that is now attached to them. The Seniors 
were: Ima Berryman, who graduates in music, and Dor- 
othy Stevens, a graduate of the Art Department. 



A very interesting recital by the advanced students in 
the College of Music was presented Thursday evening, 
February 25. 

Miss Louise Miller of the Faculty won first in the Illi- 
nois State Contest at Peoria given by the National Federa-

tion of Music Clubs. She will enter the District Contest 
to be held in Chicago April 20, and if successful there will 
have the opportunity of appearing in concert before the 
delegates at the convention of the National Federation in 
Los Angeles in June. 

Mrs. Hartmann,- Ima Berryman, and the Madrigal 
Club have assisted in the musical programs at Grace 
Church during the revival services held there the past 

Mrs. Day played a beautiful violin solo at the Recog- 
nition Service of the College Specials Friday, March 13. 


On Wednesday evening, March 17, Dr. and Mrs. 
Harker entertained the Seniors. A lovely five course 
dinner was served in their parlors. The color scheme 
was green as was appropriate to the. day. A bowl of 
shamrocks in the center of each table made the guests 
feel that a bit of Old Erin had really found its way to 
America. After the dinner an Irish program was carried 
out. Miss Gleckler read several Irish poems, a guessing 
contest of Irish melodies with a Tipperary pup and Irish 
potato as prizes was open to the Seniors. Mrs. Hart- 
mann sang several of the sweet old Irish melodies, and 
other Irish selections were played on the victrola. As 
the Seniors said good night they felt that another happy 
milestone, and which lies close to the last of the race, had 
passed for them. 


March thirteenth was one of the red letter days in the 
calendar of events at the Woman's College. Saturday 
evening the Senior class entertained the Juniors and about 
thirty other friends in the Society halls. 

Out of town guests were: Mr. Reno, Mr. Stuart, Mr. 
Husted, and Mr. Garber, from the University of Illinois; 

Page Fifteen 

®fje College Greeting* 

Dr. Munson of Rushville, Mr. Patton from Wheaton, Mr. 
Barton of Columbus, Mo., Mr. Spruitt, Mr. Lukeman and 
Mr. Theobald from Illinois Wesleyan University. 

The Society halls and the corridors approaching them 
were beautifully decorated with southern smilax and ferns. 
Green candles among the decorations and the green rib- 
bons of the Sophomore waitresses heightened the color 
scheme in honor of St. Patrick. The Seniors in their 
lovely trailing gowns gave the finishing touch to the dig- 
nity and beauty of the rooms. 

Stunts by groups of six, in which the patron saint of 
the Emerald Isle was again honored, furnished amuse- 
ment for some time. During the evening a delightful two 
course supper was served. After a number of songs by 
Miss Ima Berryman, which were immensely enjoyed, the 
whole company entered into singing various college songs 
before taking its leave. We feel sure that the good St. 
Patrick never rested as happily or contentedly in his grave 
as he has since the night of the thirteenth. 



If ever Juniors were delightfully entertained, it was 
at the Junior-Freshman party which was given in the 
Society halls on Monday, March the eighth. 

Even as we went down the receiving line the success 
of the party was assured, for the hostesses were charming 
in their hospitality. The halls never looked lovlier than 
in the soft glow of candles placed artistically in every 
nook and corner. The Freshman colors, green and 
white, were predominant in the refreshments and in the 
decorative scheme of palms, ferns and cut flowers. 

Louise Savage, Olive Scott, Gladys Holland, Elisa- 
beth Witbeck, Madeline Land and Mildred Spenser added 
to the pleasure of the evening by their musical numbers, 
which were much appreciated by the Juniors, who felt 
proud of the talent and charm of their sister class.

Many girls have been made happy this month by 
visits from fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers or — friends. 

A number of old girls have been back for short visits: 
Mabel Larson, Hazel Hamilton, Pauline Jones, Ruth 
Clements, Mary Moss, Mary Violet, Mildred Seaman, 
Bonnie Derry, and Louise Gates. 

The Senior-Junior reception brought a large number 
of out-of-town guests. 

Ankle-spraining has been quite popular lately. Even 
elevatorites are polite to the "crips" because crutches 
easily become dangerous weapons, no doubt. Fourth 
floor Harker is famed far and wide as the home of these 
slow moving celebrities. 

Are your neighbors troublesome? Then just sug- 
gest to them that they acquire the popular fad of small 
rugs, and away they will move, for a week at least. Pos- 
sibly people may think that there is to be a rummage sale 
on your corridor on account of the quantity of furni- 
ture strewn around, but no noise next door for a whole 
week and mirrors lining the hall are well worth such in- 
sinuations and even stubbed toes. 

On March first the German Club gave a Freitschke 

March eighth Bishop MacDowell gave a short but 
forceful talk in the chapel. Many were the regrets that 
it could not have been just a little longer. 

This year the nominations for May queen were con- 
ducted in a novel manner. From eighteen nominations 
made from the floor, twelve girls were selected by ballot. 
Of the twelve, one is to be chosen by lot as queen of the 
May, only a few minutes before the crowning is to take 

The whole school was made sad by the news of the 
death of Miss Hull's mother. Words have little value to 
express our sympathy for Miss Hull's sorrow.

Y. W. C. A. NOTES. 

The subject "Art and Religion" was splendidly treated 
by Miss Knopf on February 28th. The wonderful influ- 
ence of art in religion was traced through the past and 
we were brought to the realization that the painter wor- 
ships God when he produces a masterpiece. 

Sunday, March 8th, Winifred Burmeister led the meet- 
ing. The subject, "What Is Religion?" was handled in 
a comprehensive and thoughtful manner. 

The Woman's Movement was the theme for March 
1 5th. The slowly awakening and growing power of wo- 
manhood and the part that we as twentieth century wo- 
men have to play in this movement was shown. This 
meeting was conducted by Feril Hess. 

Mr. Hounschedd, a student volunteer secretary, visited 
the volunteer band March 12th. 


The usual jolly bunch of Hoosiers enjoyed a delicious 
waffle breakfast at the Peacock Inn on March 8th. 
Eighteen of the members, including our faculty member, 
Miss Johnston, were present. The conversation at the 
table was especially interesting since it concerned the dif- 
ferent routes the girls were to take on their way home for 
the Easter vacation. 

The Club is anxiously awaiting the opening of the 
picnic season. 


The question "Where do you live" was once upon a 
time an embarrassing question at I. W. C. if the answer 
was "Egypt" Why Egypt should ever have been a term 
of approbrium has always been a mystery and will prob- 
ably continue to remain so. That unhappy time is past, 

ever, and to be an Egyptian now is an honor and de- 
light, not alone in the eyes of the loyal Egyptians but 

Page Eighteen 

QLl)t College Greeting* 

even in the eyes of rank outsiders. Every new organiza- 
tion at I. W. C. is prone to celebrate its beginning by giv- 
ing a dinner. While the Egyptian Club hesitated to de- 
part from this worthy precedent in variety and length of 
menu, on the evening of March fourth it did establish a 
new precedent worthy of being followed by all who en- 
joyed the delights of well spread tables, well seasoned 
mirth and the happy proportion of talkers and listeners. 
The cheer that prevailed on that night was like that we 
find in our homes at the big family dinners. 


A. M. M. — 'The Romans thought that onions were 
not aesthetic/' 

P. W., starting for her train— "Katherine, you missed 
it! 1 fell down the front stairs head first!" 

K. L., resentfully — "Yes, and you forgot my mother's 

R. M. — "Miss Walker, I do not understand about 

Miss W. — "There is some germ which causes the mus- 
cles to contract — " 

R. M. — "Yes, but does it lock open or shut? " 

Excited member of chorus for Antigone — "Do we 
have to hold on to that long note and keep step too? "

F. H. — "I think the more we become educated the 
more we try to come in contact with the things that give 
pain, in order to overcome them." 

L. R. — "That's noble enjoyment, isn't it? " 

Helena M. — "Why, we were just inviting them as a 
condensation !" 

R. T. — "The use of 'in' in that sentence is superla- 

M. L. P. — "In Latin you have sequence of tenses." 

K. L. (recovering from an operation for appendicitis) 
— "Mother, I had the 'nuttiest' ice cream for dinner." 

Mrs. L. — "Why, Katherine, don't you know you are 
not to eat nuts? " 

The most striking item in the rise of economic condi- 
tions in the Elizabethan age was the fact that the people 
had five kinds of meat for dinner." 

Miss McL., in chemistry class — "What is a hydro- 
plane? " 

K. G. — "Why, it's an areoplane run by hydrogen." 

Miss M., in English II — "Why do we have to suffer 
now for Adam's sins? " 

R. M. — "Well, if he hadn't sinned some one else 
would have." 

Miss J. — "Those ice cream kewpies are awfully cute, 
but I would feel like a cannibal eating them." 

As translated in French II — "He spoke in a tear- 
stained voice." 

A. M., in English history — "The war of the three 
Henrys in France was between three brothers, Henry I, 
Henry II, Henry HI."

Second Prep, worrying over a theme on "Progress" — 
"Won't you please tell me just two things that help us 
to get up in the world ? " 

Soph — "Sure. The alarm clock, and to have only

Miss Coultas, in German class — "Marie, Wer ist 

Marie (meaning to say that he is a god) — "Balder

Miss C. — "If you do a thing nine hundred and ninety- 
nine times one way, why shouldn't you do it differently 
the one thousandth time? Now for instance, why should 
you do a thing nine hundred and ninety-nine days out of 
a year and not the other day? " 

Miss H., in Physics class — "Ha, give the laws of 

Ila — "Oh, oh, a homegeneous substance is in a 
straight line." 

M. S. — "In olden times people made the shrouds for 
their dead of asbestos. You know that's a good idea; it 
doesn't burn." 

Miss C, asking a question on the subject of emotion — 
"Is a deer more frightened when it is running or when it 
has been cornered? " 

After a lengthy discussion by the class, I. C. said — 
"Oh, I didn't know you were talking about an animal." 

Miss C. — "What kind of a deer did you think it was? " 

At cabinet meeting, 10:30 P. M. A. T. — "Ruth, 
how shall I know to whom to send this foreign money? " 

R. W. — "I don't know. I shall have to look in order 
to see." 

R. M. — "I never know whether to pronounce it 
P-tor-emy or Pot'-elemy."

Miss McL. — "How would you test for the addition of 
sugar in condensed milk?" 

M. M.— "Why, 1 don't know; but I do know that too 
much sugar in milk causes infants to have rickets." 

After a lengthy discussion in Education on subjective 
and objective stimuli, Margaret G. said — "Punishment is 
objective, is it not? " 



The programs this semester on the different countries 
of Europe and Asia have been splendid. Dorothy 
Stevens gave an interesting talk on Japanese art, and 
Miss Neville's talk on Constantinople was perfectly de- 
lightful. We could almost imagine ourselves in that fas- 
cinating city amidst all its richness and peculiar customs. 

The Tuesday after the initiation of our new members 
we were surprised upon going to the Hall to find two 
leather upholstered mission rockers, the gift of our new 
Belles Lettres girls. They certainly add to the coziness 
of our little informal gatherings which we often have in 
our hall. One of these affairs was a tea in honor of 
Dess Mitchell and Louise Gates, two of our "old" Belles 



The annual Theta Sigma banquet was given at the 
Colonial Inn on Saturday evening, February the twenty- 
seventh. After the serving of the banquet, Irene Merrill, 
as toastmistress, called for the following toasts: 

Dry Toast — Helen McGhee. 

Quail on Toast — Marie Johnston. 

Buttered Toast — Ruth Clements. 

Rarebit on Toast — Ruth Mendenhall. 

Hash on Toast — Ila Allen. 

Egg on Toast — Mary Baldridge.

After the toasts we went into the music room where 
several musical numbers were rendered by Bonnie Derry 
and Winifred Sale, and Annie Floreth read 'The Hazing 
of Valiant." Then several lively college songs were 
sung, ending with the Theta Sigma song. The pleasure 
of the evening was greatly enhanced by the presence of 
Mrs. Layton, Mrs. Metcalf, Dr. Harker, Miss Mothers- 
head and several former members. 

The Society has been bery glad to have as guests re- 
cently several former members: Hazel Hamilton, Mary 
Violett, Bonnie Derry, Ruth Clements, Mabel Larson and 
Mildred Seaman. 

Theta Sigma was entertained by Annie Floreth on 
Monday afternoon, March first, in honor of Ruth Clem- 
ents, a former member who is to be married in June. A 
mock kitchen shower provided a great deal of amusement. 

Helen McGhee, Edna Robb, May Bigger, Irene Mer- 
rill and Annie Floreth were entertained over a recent 
week end in Beardstown by three former members of the 

Mrs. Floreth entertained the Society at a delightful 
surprise party on Monday evening, March fifteenth, in 
honor of Annie's birthday. 

The name of Ruth Patton was omitted from the list of

The past month has brought announcements of the 
birth of sons to three of our I. W. C. women. 

In Fort Huachuca, Arizona, a little son was born on 
February 22nd to Lieutenant and Mrs. Tillson. His name 
is John Charles Fremont. Mrs. Tillson is Helen Lam- 
bert, class of '09. 

On February 1 7th was born to Mr. and Mrs. Horace 
A. Coleman, Palmyra, 111., a son, Frederick Walden. Mrs. 
Coleman was Jessica Arenz, class of '96. This is the 
second son,- with three daughters, in the home.

On February 1 5th in Terre Haute, Ind., a son was 
born to Mr. and Mrs. John Lyle Pickering. Mrs. Pick- 
ering as Katherine Yates, eldest daughter of Governor 
Richard Yates, spent several years in the Woman's Col- 
lege, of which her grandfather, Mr. A. C. Wadsworth, was 
for forty years a trustee. 

Mrs. Mary Shepherd Kuhl, class of '67, has been act- 
ive in the work of the W. C. T. U. ever since its organiza- 
tion. As national superintendent of the evangelistic de- 
partment, Mrs. Kuhl has visited the principal cities in 
nearly every state of the union. Recently Mrs. Kuhl has 
removed from Champaign, 111., to 92 East Eleventh ave- 
nue, Columbus, Ohio, where she continues her work, 
much of it with her pen, in preparation of evangelistic 
studies and leaflets used in W. C. T. U. meetings. Among 
the many leaflets is one of character sketches which in- 
cludes about fifty women of the old and new Testament. 
Another one is on nature studies in the Bible. In a charm- 
ing way it takes up the scripture references to objects and 
phenomena of the natural world — the stars, sun, clouds, 
rain, rivers, deserts, mountains and hills, the birds, flow- 
ers, and many other things that are given in the literature 
of the Bible. 

Miss Geneva Upp has been re-elected to her position 
in the high school at Lakota, N. Dakota, with an increase 
in salary. 

Miss Anna Shipley, formerly a member of the class 
of '14, is in the training school of the Morton hospital at 
Taunton, Mass. 

Miss Kate Blackburn of the class of '83, who for 
man) years has been the principal of the American Girls' 

ool in Lovetch, Bulgaria, has recently returned to her 
home near Jacksonville. She tells an interesting story 
ol her return trip as they traveled the entire distance with- 
out lights. We are hoping that "our Miss Blackburn" 
'. ill soon speak to us. 

Mr . Phebe Kreider Murray, class of '90, writes from 
Los Angelos that there will be a meeting of the California

1. W. C. Society in April at the home of the president, 
Mrs. Parthenia Harrison. Mrs. Grace Wood Jess, '98, 
will sing and other plans which are under way will insure 
as always a good time for the Golden State girls of Illinois 
Woman's College. Mrs. Murray, Mrs. Jess, and Miss 
Farley, a former teacher in the College, in a recent auto 
trip visited the exposition in San Diego, which they found 
unique, charming and different from all other expositions 
held in recent years. In San Diego a call was made on 
Mrs. Nettie Portersfeld Sargent, class of '89. Her 
daughter who is yet in high school looks forward to col- 
lege days in her mother's Alma Mater in her native state. 
She will be eligible for membership in the Kinship Klub 
through more than one clansman. 

It was an oversight that the following announcement 
did not appear in a previous issue: Born to Mr. and Mrs. 
Albin Keys, in Springfield, 111., January 29, a daughter, 
Louise. Mrs. Keys was formerly Miss Helen Lewis. 


What has been the theme for the various editorials 
this month? It is a tie between "Show Your Loyalty, 
Buy Your Share of Stock in the College Paper, and Get 
One Hundred Per Cent Dividends!" and "Away With 
the Bugaboo, No Time for This, Too Busy for That." 
These two watchwords seem to be common to every 
school. Probably the time of the year has something to 
do with it. Now all classes are trying to get the heavy 
work done before the "spring complaint" appears; organi- 
zations have all hands on deck for the end of the year's 
journey is in sight and much is still undone; even pleasure 
makes a more insistent demand, if possible, and where 
are people to be found to do all those write-ups? Many 
a paper has taken refuge in contests of various sorts and 
mostly with great success. 

The Augustana Observer's new cover on the Febru- 
ary number, the result of a sucessful contest, is quite pleas-

ing, an adjective also appropriate for the material within 
the cover. The article "Washington's Neutrality Procla- 
mation and Wilson's" is well written and very interesting. 

The March Pegasus has some good editorials on Sys- 
tematized Time. A remedy for the "no time" complaint 
would prove very valuable and at least well worth trying. 

"A Revelation," in the Western Oxford, has the note 
of reality, a characteristic so valuable in good story tell- 
ing. Their statistics on the reading done by seniors are 
illuminating to say the least. It is to be deplored that the 
"butterfly habit of reading" is so current among college

"The year's at the spring 
And day's at the morn; 
Morning's at seven; 
The hill side's dew-pearled; 
The lake's on the wing; 
The snail's on the thorn: 
God's in his heaven — 
All's right with the world!" 

— Browning.
